Abstract
Organized culling or destocking was first introduced into Tanganyika in the thickly populated Mbulu district of the Northern Province and is now also being carried out as part of the development programme in all districts of the Central Province, in the main portion of the Lake Province known as Sukuma land and in the Nzega district of the Western Province. The areas concerned contain nearly two-thirds of the cattle population of Tanganyika. With the exception of Mbulu, which is mountainous with a relatively high rainfall, the country is mainly open or semi-open steppe lying at an altitude of 2,500 to 4,000 ft. with a rainfall of 18 to 35 inches.
